COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is made in the pumpkin beer tradition, except instead of pumpkins we used yams, and lots of them! A big Belgian-style brown ale of 10% ABV, this one is bringing pumpkin beers (or yam beers) into new territory.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2009
On tap at the Ginger Man in NYC. Pours a cloudy, deep reddish amber to ruby colored body with a finger-width, creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a very pretty lacing. The Bruery really does make well laced beers. Aroma is a nice pumpkin pie spice with lots of floral maple syrups. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and a sticky, semi-syrupy malt as well as a mix of fruits. Flavor is syrupy thick and sweet with plenty of pumpkin pie spicing before it finishes with a nice woody, floral bitterness and plenty of sweet maple syrup malts and spices that linger for a good amount of time. A light Belgian yeast and fruit at the end as well as a touch of white grape. Medium to full body and smooth. Overall, a very clean and balanced beer for such a high ABV. Nice maple sweetness with a solid spice and hint of Belgian taste. Good one.

Ungstrup (29809) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2009
Bottled. A hazy red beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of spices, pumpkin, caramel, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, pumkin pie, cinnamon, and other spices, leading to a dry spicy finish. The alcohol leaves a slight burn in the throat.

Bottled. Reddish brown coloured. Unclear. No head. Aroma of fruits, herbs, light grape, light barnyard, spice. Flavour of herbs, caramel, spice, loads of syrup. To sweet and syrupy for my tastebuds. Medium bodied. ends on a spiced sugary note.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2009
Bottle 75 cl. Pours a cloudy deep amber with basically no head. Sweet and syrupy nose with a distinct spiciness - although a little hard to define what spices. Very solid body, basically no carbonation. Accents of pumpkins and cinnamon - hard to grasp that no pumpkins were used! Warming alcoholic finish. Interesting. 231109

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 21, 2009
THOUGHTS: It was almost like an apple cider and it also somehow reminded me of Mad Elf partially because it was easy to drink, but it can kick you in the ass if you drink it too quick. Way lighter than I would have thought. His could have been sickeningly sweet, but it wasn’t. It was rather sour, but in a very nice way. I gave it two bonus points because it was way better than the sum of its parts. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a murky, light to medium brown that was highlighted with amber. It had an average, off-white head that fully diminished. The aroma was moderate to heavy caramel and molasses; light to moderate yeast; apple, honey, maple syrup, a hint of vanilla, lots of fall spices, yam, apple cider, orange peel, sour apple and slight sour cherry. The initial flavor was sweet, acidic and slightly sour; while the finish was sour, lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter and slightly acidic with a long duration. There was apple cider, fall spices, a bit of yam, maple syrup, sour apples and slight vanilla. The light to medium body was like watered down syrup and then very dry with lightly tingly carbonation and a light to moderately astringent, lightly alcoholic and dry finish.
